Support for email API authentication

Support for email API authentication

The email service from Identity manager does not support API authentication. Is needed to connect IDM email service to a third party like Sengrid, this is a security update and the current product does not support this feature.

To which kind of API authentication are you referring? SMTP Auth with username and password is support. See https://www.netiq.com/documentation/identity-manager-48/policy_designer/data/dosendemailfromtemplate.html

This REST API seems to be specific to a 3rd party provider (sendgrid.com). Are you asking to support this proprietary protocol?

Why not use sendgrid's SMTP API (https://sendgrid.com/docs/API_Reference/SMTP_API/getting_started_smtp.html)? That should be based on a standard protocol support by IDM.
